With Being Mary Jane coming to a close and her setting up an ABC comedy pilot with LeBron James, Gabrielle Union’s next onscreen gig could be on the way.
She is set to headline a Bad Boys television spinoff series, reprising her character, Special Agent Sydney “Syd” Burnett from the second Bad Boys film. Burnett was an undercover DEA operative and sister of Martin Lawrence’s Marcus Burnett and love interest for Will Smith’s Mike Lowrey.
The untitled project is being pitched to multiple networks, according to Deadline. Many are said to be interested and it is expected to “land a major commitment.”
The project is from Jerry Bruckheimer and Doug Belgrad and Sony Pictures TV Studios is the studio.
The spinoff is being written by NBC’s The Blacklist writers and producers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier.
A third film itself, Bad Boys 3, has been in development for some time, and Belgrad was one of the financiers. Just a few months ago Lawrence said he believed the movie wasn’t going to happen.
